If you’re a dedicated sewer, you know that proper patterning is key to a successful project. Sailrite® offers a large selection of patterning tools to make creating and following your pattern easier than ever, including everyday must-haves like marking pencils, patterning material, strapping tape and more. Sailrite is a second-generation, family-owned business staffed by a team of discerning DIYers, so we’re always on hand to help you pick out the appropriate sewing notions for your next big project.
We have a broad selection of marking solutions designed to help you mark fabrics for precise patterning. Shop best-sellers like our Soapstone Fabric Marking Pencil if you’re looking for a long-term and high-quality fabric marker that you can refill. Natural soapstone is excellent for marking dark fabrics and is designed to wash off easily with water. We also carry washable fabric markers and water-soluble marking pencils so that you can be 100 percent sure the markings will wash away when you’re done. We’ve got fabric markers that work on dark and light fabrics alike. We always recommend testing any fabric marking tool on a spare fabric swatch before applying it to your project to ensure that it washes away to your satisfaction.
Sailrite also offers practical patterning accessories to make your job easier and more precise. For example, you can use a Spring Clamp to create smooth surfaces and edges that won’t damage your fabric. This “extra hand” is helpful when patterning during sewing, draping and fitting fabric. We also stock Dura-Skrim® Patterning Material made from lightweight, clear plastic that’s highly tear-resistant. This material can be pulled tight over a frame or around an object without stretching out of shape, so it’s excellent for patterning a dodger, bimini or enclosure.
